Benefits of Permanent Makeup

Published on April 6, 2018 by

Are you sick of putting on makeup day after day, trying to keep it looking perfect, and wasting hours of time and money? Permanent makeup, also known as cosmetic tattooing, may be the solution you’ve been looking for.

Permanent makeup is a way to add long-lasting pigment to areas like the eyebrows, upper and lower eyelids, and lips. It can be used to create the effects of lip liner, eyebrow pencil, lipstick, or eyeliner without using any traditional makeup.

Cosmetic tattooing offers makeup in any shade you’re looking for. If you can’t find a shade that you like, we can also create a new one for you.

The Many Benefits of Permanent Makeup

You may be wondering whether or not permanent makeup is the right decision for you. There are many reasons why people come in for this cosmetic option.

One of the most popular reasons to come in for application of permanent makeup is convenience. If you’re a busy professional who often finds that there isn’t enough time in the day to get your makeup just right and keep it looking flawless, permanent makeup is a great solution. No more smears, no more smudges, just a beautiful and lasting look.

Athletes and others with very active lifestyles also find permanent makeup to be a great way to keep their makeup smudge-free.

If you have allergies to the chemicals in traditional makeup or other cosmetic products, this is a perfect way to avoid unwanted reactions. None of the chemicals from these products are present in permanent makeup, and permanent makeup is quite safe for the skin.

For those who have difficulty applying makeup, daily application can be endlessly frustrating. Some lack the deft touch required to put on makeup perfectly, and others have eyesight problems that can make it an impossible task. Permanent makeup makes life much easier for these people.

If you have prominent and embarrassing scars, permanent makeup can be used as a way to hide these skin issues, helping you feel more comfortable in social situations.

People who need to use eye drops on a regular basis or whose eyes tear up often run into issues with their makeup. Permanent makeup is an effective solution for these issues.

Your Cosmetic-Tattooing Consultation

The first step towards getting permanent makeup is the consultation. During this consultation at Marietta Plastic Surgery, you will meet with a skilled aesthetic professional who will tell you about the permanent-makeup options that we offer. The two of you will discuss and settle on the best options for you, and you will be able to ask any questions that you may have.

The Procedure: What to Expect

The cosmetic-tattooing process requires around a half-hour to an hour to perform depending on a number of factors. It begins will the administration of a local anesthetic to the targeted areas. This numbs the regions in order to make this aesthetic treatment as comfortable as possible.

After the areas have been numbed, the cosmetic tattooing will take place. This process involves the use of a very precise tattoo pen. This pen injects the requested colors of ink into the skin in the areas that have been specified.

Once the permanent makeup has been applied, it may look either brighter or darker than expected; this is only temporary. The brightness of your permanent makeup will better match your expectations in a couple days as the skin heals and swelling goes down.

Permanent makeup is long-lasting. The exact amount of time your permanent makeup will last in your skin before reapplication is necessary varies.
